Thanks to everyone who answered the call for suggestions for this year’s West Seattle Outdoor Movies series, six summer Saturday nights featuring free films at dusk in the courtyard by Hotwire Online Coffeehouse (4410 California SW; WSB sponsor), now just a month and a half away, with co-sponsors including WSB. The lineup is set – and the leader of the movie pack, Hotwire’s Lora Swift, has two requests. But first, the movies!
Sat, July 18th: “Zoolander,” 2001 (trailer above; PG-13)
Sat, July 25th: “Singles,” 1992 (PG-13)
Sat, Aug 1st: “Raising Arizona,” 1987 (PG-13)
Sat, Aug 8th: “Big Hero 6,” 2014 (PG)
Sat, Aug 15th: “Guardians of the Galaxy,” 2014 (PG-13)
Sat, Aug 22nd: “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” 1975 (R)
(“Rocky” ended its monthly Admiral Theater run last fall, so this will be its first screening in West Seattle in almost a year.) Now, the requests:
NONPROFITS WANTED: Every movie night includes a raffle to raise money for local nonprofits. If yours is interested, please apply now! You’ll have to contribute a few items for the raffle and have a rep there on your movie night as well as two volunteers. By the way, sponsors contribute cool raffle items too, all season long, so the raffle items aren’t ONLY from the beneficiaries.
PRE-SHOW ENTERTAINMENT WANTED: Lora is recruiting variety acts to perform in the courtyard before the movie (times TBA, since the movie starts at dusk and that gets earlier as the summer goes on) – go to this link (CL) to find out more.
The e-mail address for charities and pre-show entertainment is the same: firstname.lastname@example.org
